"Surprisingly, the hardest part about building a computer is deciding which parts to use and purchase" - NZXT
Based on many years helping gamers and power users make smarter purchases - both in-person at one of my old jobs in laptop/desktop/printer sales a while ago, and now digitally with this site - the quote above is pretty much spot-on. You'd think actually assembling your PC would be the hard part as a beginner, but in reality, for most people the trickier bit is doing the extensive planning and research required to choose the perfect list of complimentary, fully-compatible, value for money parts for exactly what you want to do with your PC (everyone has slightly different needs).
And when you think about it, it makes sense, no?
Actually physically building your PC is just a matter of following instructions carefully, plugging, connecting and screwing things in, installing software and tinkering a bit with different programs, and that's about it. It can seem a bit complicated from the outside looking in, but when you actually build a rig you come to realize it's really not rocket science (and also come to realize that the now overly-used cliche that building a PC is just like Lego but for grown-ups is quite accurate after all).
But choosing the right parts you can be 100% confident in pulling the trigger with and ordering to your door can be a frustrating, head-scratching affair that goes on and on and on over weeks (if not months). When planning your first PC, it's all too easy to get lost in a sea of specs, endless different models, confusing performance benchmarks, strong opposing opinions on forums, misleading customer reviews - not to mention the myriad of misinformation and factually straight-up-incorrect advice you'll see gamers often haphazardly spreading online.
Unfortunately, some would-be builders get too overwhelmed and intimidated with choosing parts, and end up throwing in the towel on the DIY dream. You may start out excited to build a PC, then get overwhelmed during the planning stage and end up getting seduced by the easier path of just buying a pre-built PC - the darkside, if you will. Pre-built systems are typically overpriced and contain lower quality components, less upgrade options and flexibility, annoying/useless pre-installed software, not to mention they're hardly ever optimized (ie bang for your buck) when it comes to gaming or workstation performance.
If you're buying an office PC that doesn't have much demands at all, a basic cheap pre-built is okay, but for graphically-demanding modern AAA games nothing comes close to picking your own parts individually and building a system yourself. Same thing goes when building any other demanding PC for things like VR, editing, streaming, game development, music production, 3D rendering, and so on - building your own computer is best 95 times out of 100.
But if despite understanding all the benefits of building a PC yourself (and the fact it's easy these days), if you're still on the fence about actually going through with it due to being a little overwhelmed with choosing the right fully-compatible, bang for buck, high-quality parts-list - this PC planning service might be what you need to gain full confidence and assurance in your purchases, so you can keep your DIY dream alive. This "done for you" build planning service is essentially the digital equivalent of having a tech-savvy big brother by your side to help you 1-on-1 with anything you need help with, I'm here to help if you need thorough, tailored help and advice.
